Review 1 for Membership Matters: Insights from Effective Churches on New Member Classes and Assimilation
This book is THE book to own for a pastor or church leader who needs a resource on new member classes. I've seen several approaches described in various places, but nothing until now that brings the numerous concepts together in one cover. In addition to sound advice in the narrative, there are 15 appendices that offer sample forms and outlines for nearly every step of the new member assimilation process.Lawless has hit a "home run" here -- for me this title is a keeper!
